Google tells us why the Nest Cam's batteries perform poorly in winter

Have you noticed abnormal battery behavior on your Nest Cam or Nest Doorbell ? The answer to these doubts was given directly by Google . According to the company, the devices, if exposed to low temperatures, could show some uncertainty, especially on the battery side.

In detail, “9to5Google” found a article that describes precisely what is happening. The batteries, at a temperature between – 20 ° C and 0 ° C , will still power the devices but will not charge. Indeed, at temperatures close to -20 ° C they could offer half the life of what you get in warmer environments.

While this may not be a major problem for the Nest Cam (which also works with power), for the Nest Doorbell it is a major obstacle as it only runs on battery. At the moment, the only advice given by Google is to place the device inside the houses.
